(LOT 175)
1959 Topps #10 Signed Mickey Mantle - PSA 3 VG Card Grade; PSA 10 GEM MINT Autograph

PERFECT CENTERING; 10 AUTO!!! The lowest pop signed Mickey Mantle in this extraordinary collection, PSA lists only 32 autographed 1959 Topps #10 Mantles (a fractional 0.3% of the nearly 9,800 PSA unsigned copies), with this magnificent marvel depicting a PSA 3 VG card grade as well as a 10 GEM MINT signature! Remarkably, there are only a few less unsigned PSA 9 examples, with a mere 25 MINT Commerce Comet '59 Topps subjects averaging a staggering $100K VCP value! Now consider that this particular offering just happens to flaunt perfect centering, with no apparent partiality towards any particular edge.

Indeed, The Mick's portrait pose is situated in a virtually spot-on 50/50 position, with the even corner wear actually revealing a super eye-pleasing uniformity. The inclusion of an imposing bold black 10 Mickey Mantle script directly beneath his right cheek is the final exclamation point for what may truly be, from a pure eye-appeal perspective, the finest '59 Topps autographed specimen. Simply stated, only a handful of the PSA 9 unsigned specimens can boast dead-on centering, with any of the prior pricing points for a signed '59 Topps Mantle rendered virtually useless since this offering's world-class aesthetics outdistance all of its inferior brethren!
